    The lighting does nothing for your tiled walls and accent in that picture.

      Finally had some nicer weather and no rain to be able to pour the bottom concrete for under the sink in the bath . . .

      sm_bath152.jpg

      Pulled the forms off the concrete and have it in the sun to dry . . . this will go under the hole in the counter top and be a "backing" for the sink so that the water hitting the bottom of the sink does not have a tinny sound to it . . . want it to sound more solid then that . . .

        Been wondering how the progress was going. Looking forward to the finished product.

        LOL . . . I've been wondering too . . .

        The picture of the "bottom" that is up above . . . did not work, something was wrong with the concrete, it did not hold up at all . . .

        SO . . . I had to do round 2 of the bottom piece . . . and now . . .

        sm_bathsink01.jpg

        that piece has been glued in place to help support the bottom of the sink and make it so the water hitting the bottom of the sink does not sound "tinny" . . .

            A couple of layers of sticky backed sound deadener would have gotten rid of the tinny sound. Most of the better stainless sinks use a deadener similar.

              The reason that I didn't want sticky backed sound deadener . . . I wanted some support for the Drain as well as no "tinny" sound when the water hits it . . .

              Finally getting back to this . . . let's just say that things have happened and this is now being able to be worked on . . .

              Also, been thinking a lot about the fact that this sink is "missing" an overflow drain . . . and I think someone even mentioned it earlier ( but I can show you a cabinet top bowl type sink that also does not have an overflow ) . . . it still was bothering me . . . so I've done some more creative thinking and more "mad scientist" fabrication . . . and came up with this . . .

              Added a dual overflow for this sink, and I feel better bout it - they are stainless steel - should be great . . .

              sm_bath153.jpg

              from there, they will exit out the back and drain in above the J-trap . . .

              sm_bath154.jpg

              got the sink secured to the bottom with silicone . . .
              added a 1/8" bead around the edge to ( hopefully) make the water slope toward the drain - it's pulled down tight . . .

              sm_bath155.jpg

              added a piece of aluminum on the bottom as my hole did not alight quite right, and the nut had no purchase to hold down the sink . . . it does now . . .

              sm_bath156.jpg

              Finally getting this figured out and making some progress on getting it completed . . . can't wait to be done with this . . .

              You may have never needed the over flow. But there is peace of mind knowing its there if ever needed.
